Protect server against brute force attacks

Is there a service in Sophos XG that automatically blocks the ip of the client that is trying to brute force access a web server?

That is, if there is, what can be an effective way to prevent brute force attacks on, for example, an apache server that provides services on the internet?

  • Hi,

    are you asking about external access to your mail server? Why if you want to block access to your mail server is it exposed to the internet?

    You can use firewall rules rather than IPS signatures.
